I was getting quite a pile of “leftovers” from my bowl making projects, and came across some artwork on pinterest that I liked. I figured I would use my scraps for something similar, and this was the result. I cut the pieces and did the decorating on a bandsaw and did the outside with a circle jig for my router.

There are a lot of different domestic and exotic hardwoods in this piece, with some dyed veneer on the inlay pieces. It is 34” in dia.

Great job.
